The road sign recognition is hit and miss, some road signs are very clear but the system does not respond, some times no sign and it will come up with 90 mph and 60 through built up areas.
Skoda local dealership says there is nothing they can do!

They do post this as a disclaimer in their manuals , but you could try another dealership whilst it is still under warranty and say what they say . Possibly software update available .

The traffic signs may not be displayed or displayed incorrectly in the system
e.g. in the following situations.
■ When visibility is poor, (e.g. fog, heavy rain, thick snowfall).
■ The sensor is blinded by the sun or oncoming traffic.
■ The field of view of the sensor is limited by an obstacle or a preceding vehicle.
■ Travelling at high speed.
■ The traffic signs are covered (e.g. by trees, snow or dirt).
■ The traffic signs are not standard (round with a red border) or are damaged.
■ The traffic signs are attached to flashing neon signs.
■ The traffic signs were changed (the navigation data are out of date).
